The Iron Curtain Trail (ICT) is a European cycle route which invites people to retrace and experience this important part of the continent's history.
EuroVelo is a network of 14 long distance cycle routes connecting and uniting the whole European continent. The routes can be used by cycle tourists as well as by local people making daily journeys and it is envisaged that the network will be substantially complete by 2020 One of the newest trail is the Iron Curtain Trail -EuroVelo route nr. 13., which leads from the Barents Sea to the Black Sea and is more than 10,400 km long (approximately 8,800 km of which is inside the EU and 1,600 km is located outside).
